FRIENDLY RIVALS: Ali Trewartha and Tamara Dartnall
will compete in the Bay Sheffield.


Bay Sheff sash the only focus

NEXT month they will battle it out in Australia’s richest women’s foot race, but prizemoney is far from Tamara Dartnall and Ali Trewartha‘s minds.

Instead, they just want their names etched in history.

The pair, who train together at McKinnon Parade Athletics Club, have both nominated to run in the 120m Women’s Gift at this year’s Bay Sheffield which boasts a purse of $10,000 - the most offered for a women’s event.

But Dartnall, 27, who beat Trewartha in a nail-biter to win last year’s Bay Sheff, said it was “prestige” not prizemoney on the line.

“The prizemoney is just amazing and it’s great to hear people are really getting behind women’s racing,” Dartnall, of Findon, said.

“It’s a nice bonus but it’s really about winning and having your name in the record books ... it’s the sash that I want.”

Trewartha, of Prospect, is hoping 2011 will be the year she claims her first Bay Sheff.

“It’s the one you most want to be a part of and the one everyone wants to win,” the 25-year-old said.

“It has gone for 125 years straight and didn’t even stop for the world wars - so I think that’s a reminder of just how special this race is.”

Michelle Burckhardt from the SA Athletics League said the event had already attracted about 10 interstate entries.

“A lot of girls would run even if there was just $10 on the line but it’s nice that we can now offer that extra bit of a reward,” Ms Burckhardt said.
